Aussie born TV presenter and host Karl Schmid has been busy taking American TV viewers on an emotional journey as host of the Logo TV show “Operation Vacation”. The show, which debuted back in March 2013, gives one deserving person each week the holiday adventure of their dreams. This series comes hot on the heels of his current role as one of the entertainment correspondents of ABC’s “On The Red Carpet” – seen all over the country. He has covered every major event ranging from the Grammy’s and Oscars, to major movie premieres and celebrity events.
It is a far cry from Karl’s native Australia – where he got the acting bug as a child appearing on TV in local productions. When his family moved first to Fiji and later New Zealand, he continued to appear on television in kids’ productions. Karl headed to London next and for many years worked with international superstar Barry Humphries (known to millions for his alter ego – Dame Edna).
